Subject: Typical Jerry Warren
Bruno De Soto who worked with Warren and just about every B movie director (even directed a few movies himself) said the Jerry Warren was the only director in Hollywood who ever set out to deliberately make a bad movie.
Among Warren's other movies, this is actually one of the better ones. The worst are the films almost entirely based on bought footage with a few linked scenes he shot which clearly don't fit with whatever footage he purchased. Those films are even too obscure to belong in PD. They suffer the worst critcism anyone can give to any sci fi/ horror movie. They are dull.
If you think this movie is boring, watch Face of the Screaming Werewolf, Creature of the Walking Dead and the last hour of Curse of the Stone Hand (the opening part of the movie has a good short film from South America made in the '30s).

And why do the guys keep taking off their shirts and putting them back on? They have no bath facilities. Oh, yes, then there's the lizard - a big one. What's it eat? Lots of insects in the dead caves?
Finally, the first bell didn't fail: the cable did. Why all of the tedious re-design, re-engineering and re-manufacturing just to keep a cable intact? And why wasn't the first cable system load-tested in the first place?
I guess I know why this one wasn't shown in my neighborhood.
Subject: I agree and yet,,,
Back then I didn't appreciate Phyllis Coates and Sheila Noonan however. Noonan went on to a few Corman films as Sheila Carrol in The Beast From Haunted Cave, Ski Troop Attack, a walk-on in Bucket of Blood, and...not much else really.
It says a lot that Jerry Warren had two fine leading ladies plus Robert Clark and John Carradine and still managed to bring it down to this level.
I'm amused that the poor bearded guy is utterly harmless and polite until the scriptwriter decides to kill him off, and then he gets pushy and murderous with one of the women.
Subject: I don't know about this one.
Subject: Opps... I watch a movie!
No nice words for it. Only reason I give it more than one star is because of John Carradine, who I like, even when he is bad.
Subject: A Waste of John Carradine
That's when the narrator tells us the ocean is a jungle. All the dialog stinks like that.
Subject: incredible shriking what?
no plot, horrible acting. A good waste of time/
Subject: Don't bother
